Amy Poehler & Nick Offerman to host competition show

Amy Poehler and her Paper Kite Productions are making a foray into unscripted TV with “The 2017-03-28 20-35-04Handmade Project”, a competition reality show which has received a six-episode straight-to-series order by NBC.

Poehler is reuniting with her former Parks and Recreation co-star Nick Offerman on the show, which celebrates artisanship and the makers who can create amazing things with their hands … and a few tools too.

Each week eight all-around makers, from all walks of life, will take on a series of projects with the hopes of impressing Poehler, Offerman and our expert judges. Over the course of each episode, the contestants must tackle a different theme, hand-making items in different disciplines — the difficulty of which increases with every episode until a winner is crown.
